Now it’s time to get serious about taking your idea and turning it into a convention proposal. Submit a proposal to be considered to present at the 2018 ACTFL Annual Convention and World Languages Expo of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, November 16-18. This year we will be incorporating the FIPLV World Congress into the convention. Join thousands of your colleagues from around the world at the most comprehensive professional development event available to language educators today. With the ACTFL Convention featuring more than 800 sessions covering a wide variety of topics at all levels and languages, the Convention Committee is seeking sessions that help language educators be better able to develop their students’ critical-thinking, creativity, communication, collaboration and problem-solving skills. Share your brilliant idea that will give attendees that “wow” experience and send them back to their schools with many takeaways!

The entire selection process is designed to provide attendees with an exciting array of sessions and events to further your knowledge and skills to become better, well-informed teachers and administrators. We welcome language educators at all levels and of all languages to submit a proposal.
